The Old Lady of Italian Football had been in negotiations with the south coast club throughout the course of transfer deadline day as they sought to bring in the 28-year-old.

However, Juve managed to beat the clock, with head coach Antonio Conte even securing an option to buy the Italy international outright for €19m payable over a three-year period when the striker’s loan deal expires on May 31.

Osvaldo only scored three times during a fairly disastrous spell on the south coast, and after reportedly headbutting team-mate Jose Fonte in training, it was important for Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino to take immediate action.
